Number formats help

See the different number formats you should use when performing an application (consent), licence or registration search.

Application numbers

Application numbers include Building Consents and Resource Consents.

Building consent number = Prefix-Year-number/0 (e.g., BC-2020-12345/0) - note that the number can be from 3 to 5 digits. The prefix is the application type code.

Resource consent number = Number-Suffix (e.g., 1234567-RMAVAR). The suffix is the application type code.

Licence numbers

Council provides licences for a variety of categories, including food premises, licensed premises, and building warrants of fitness.

Food business licence number = Prefix-number (e.g., NP3-12345) - the prefix is normally 3 characters (e.g., NP3, or FCP)

Licensed premises and onsite effluent disposal = Prefix-number-suffix (e.g., LMG-12345-GEN) - the number can be 4 to 5 digits

Building warrants of fitness = as per licensed premises
